Boston tallied seven times in the eleventh inning tonight to beat the Blue Jays, 11-7. A two-run double by Dustin Pedroia (who had four RBIs on the night), a three-run monster home run (into the top deck at SkyDome) by Mike Napoli and a two-run HR by Allen Craig (his first as a member of the Red Sox) highlighted the frame. Boston took yet another 3-0 lead in the first, but Rubby De La Rosa could not hold it and the game went to extras tied at 4-4. The win reduced The Valentine Magic Number to 12.
